Lilac: We had our Lilac formulated to make it the most realistic that we could find. This lilac really sticks in CP soap, unlike most lilac scents. It is a magnificent light floral scent that is sure to prove a best seller for you.Quickly thickens liquid soap clouds then finishes honey colored.
Performance in Cold Process Soap: Like most florals, this fragrance does accelerate trace. It discolors to a honey tan color.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Kim! I'm sorry you were disappointed with your most recent purchase of this scent. Our Lilac Fragrance Oil has not been reformulated since you've been buying it. In our tests and recipes this fragrance does discolor to a honey tan color and can accelerate like most florals. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a hand blender for problem oils. Lastly, raise your temperatures to about 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. If it does start to rice you can try using your stick blender to help smooth the soap out as seen in the Soap Behaving Badly blog post. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!
